Hi all, I just want to wish good luck to all new candidates. I will be joining Booth this Summer and I am as exited as when I pressed "submit" on my application.
A word of advice from me will be to try to reach out to alumns and current students. It helped me a great deal and provided me with great insight. Don't be afraid to mention those that helped you (after you get his/her permission). I was honest and upfront with my applications and it worked out for me so I think it is a good tactic. Let me know if you have any specific question and I will try to help. :-D
Again, good luck!


Thanks for your kind words of advice! I hope Chicago treats you well this fall!

Funny story: I'm an American currently living in Taiwan, and reached out to Booth inquiring about Taiwan events just before Worldwide Booth Night back in April. The alumni group invited me to their get-together. I was the only recruit who came, almost everyone there had attended the EMBA program in Singapore and is quite senior in their respective companies. The event was held in a private karaoke room, and I was asked to SING in front of everyone!

Please keep your fingers crossed that my lousy version of New York, New York doesn't put me on the ding list :-D

I am a reapplicant at Booth. Since I have to redo the PPT, it is fairly hard for me to come up with new themes and concepts to use in my new presentation. Should I use the same ideas and try to convey them differently? Is a certain degree of repetition acceptable?

Would there be an interest in a webinar where I cover common pitfalls / errors people make in applying to Booth? If so, PM me or post here.

Anyone of you guys ever joined one of the live admission chats?

There is one ongoing as we speak and wow, it's deep....let me give you two examples:

Quote:
Wilma: Q2. what is the proper time to apply for the 2011 fall semester? what is the deadtime? thanks!
Joanna: To view the application deadlines visit: http://www.chicagobooth.edu/fulltime/ad ... apply.aspx

or

Bedo: What is the required GMAT score for the full-time MBA program?
Joanne: Hi Bedo. We do not have a minimum GMAT score requirement for application to the Full Time Program at Chicago Booth.


Questions that I am asking about information that is not readily available on the web and that I would consider 'insightful' are being ignored....It's frustrating it's been like that last time as well

You are right!

While no one of us here can guarantee that we will all be accepted at the B-school of our choice, it is very amusing to see with what lack of professionalism others pursue their B-school dreams......anyhow, I just don't understand why adcom even bothers with some of those questions, to me this clearly indicates someone is not prepared and what do you want with him/her in your incoming class....but I'll take this a confidence booster that my application will clearly not be at the bottom of applicant pool.

:beer Cheers to those who know when the application deadlines are :lol:

IS Booth "reapplicant friendly"??

I mean 'really' reap friendly not just the official speech " ... we strongly encourage reapplicant to submit an application Bla Bla bla.."

Any insider info?
thanks.


I was wondering the same thing about reapplying. I'm still on the summer waitlist after applying to R2, but it isn't looking too promising to be admitted at this point. I was admitted to a couple other programs, and am debating whether to reapply or go to one of the other schools I was accepted at.

I don't think writing an essay is a good idea. I can't see how the "blank page" is different form the last year's presentation.
